Rick Brunetto Big Band, Valley Dale Ballroom on 19 Jul 2024 at 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

With our big band anything is possible!

The Rick Brunetto Big Band performs a variety of music so everyone can enjoy the party. Our orchestra plays a wide selection of virtually all eras from the swinging big band years to Earth Wind and Fire, Chicago and the Motown years.

Our charts literally fill up a basement. We were able to carry only a “small” portion of our music with us on paper, so we had to do something. Yes, you guessed it right, we travel now with computers! We are probably the first tech savvy Big Band you heard about. 

Wherever we go we will have thousands of songs with us, only a “finger slide” away. Not many bands have this kind of selection available at their every shows.

The list below is only a part of the songs we have available, and the list is growing monthly.

Sinatra Forever Show

Frank Sinatra was truly one of the greatest entertainers of our lifetime. Our tribute show features the spot on original arrangements from Nelson Riddle, Billy May, Neal Hefti and others. We will take you to the Sands Hotel in 1966 with Sinatra and Basie. Complete with a video montage of Sinatra’s life this show is a must see for Sinatra lovers.

Swing’s Still The Thing

Relive the golden big band years of he 40’s as we take a journey back in time when swing was king. Miller, Dorsey, James, Kenton, Herman- it’s all there. Complete with singers dancers this show will recreate the magic of the fabulous era of big band swing.

Italian Show

Along with nationally acclaimed tenor Elio Scaccio we have created a show that tributes some of the greatest singers the world has known including Lanza, Pavarotti, Caruso, Sinatra, Bennett, Daren, Groban and Bocelli. With lush orchestrations and a few tarantellas here in there this is a musical treat for not just Italians but all who just love great music.

Big Band at the Movies

The music from the stage and cinema has produced some of the most enduring standards of the American song book. Our show highlights some of the greatest music themes of all time from Gone With The Wind to John Williams and beyond the magic of the movies comes alive big band style. Featuring our three fabulous singers and huge orchestrations the music of the cinema never sounded better.

Holiday Shows

Our Patriotic Show has been a sure winner especially for the 4th of July or Veterans Day. This special dramatic presentation features a reading of the Declaration of Independence set to music.

Celebrate the Christmas Season in big band style! The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is all about those holiday favorites presented by our 3 singers.

New Years Eve, Dinner, Show & Dance. Last year our guest star was Deana Martin singing with the orchestra.

Motown Magic

We all danced to the soulful sounds of Motown. The Temps, The Supremes, Stevie, you remember all the hits. Motown never sounded better with the power of the 17-piece orchestra and our fabulous singers delivering those hits we all grew up with.
